Introduction

The declared   strategic goal of   Ukraine's foreign policy   - integration into the   European Union ( EU)  - first of   all,   involves adapting   the development   of European   standards for information   and the subsequent   entry   of Ukraine   into a single   European information space .  The Law   of Ukraine   "On the basis   of domestic and   foreign policy,"   states that " ...  the basic principles of   domestic politics   in the humanitarian   sphere are the   reform and development of   the national system of   higher education and science, providing their   integration into the   European and global   educational and research area ,  implementation of the principles   and standards   of the Bologna process ,  ensuring the integration   of Ukraine   into the European political , economical and  legal environment   in order to   gain   membership   in the European Union   "[1 ].  Informational   European integration   involves not   only cooperation   in the exchange of   information, and   a broader range of   collaborative   information activities in   the field of education , science,  ICT industry ,  audiovisual   broadcasting , etc. The formation and   implementation of an effective   information policy and   strategy of integration   into the European information   space   will allow Ukraine to   form a new   strategic source   of filling the state   budget , as well as  to stimulate   socio- economical development  of the country.
Analysis of recent scientific researches .  The problems   of informational integration   to date   only   beginning to be explored   by domestic and   foreign scientist , including A.  Gritsenko   [ 2]  O.   Monatova   [ 3], M.  Melnik   [ 4].
Despite the large number   of scientific   papers on   the subject,   there are still no   papers,   which prove   the economic feasibility of   informational   Ukraine's European integration . With the development of the dialogue between Ukraine and the EU economical  grounding of informational integration seems to be timely research.
The purpose   of article  is to estimate the   feasibility   of integration of Ukraine   into the European information   space with   the positions of key   national   economical and media   interests as well as   the processes of development   of the educational system .
The main material .  Analysis of trends of development   in education and   science,   as   one of   the most   information-intensive   economic practices ,  and the degree   of readiness for   integration with the   global information society , for example,  European ,  allows   to evaluate the   appropriateness   of informational integration of   the country  in its entirety .
Processes related to the   integration   of information   stimulate the development   of "information tourism ," which  is of a strategic importance   from an economic point   of view.   For example , information  tourism   brings together   scientific,   academic , cultural- familiarization , business tourism  and other   types associated   with receipt or   exchange of   product information .
In Ukraine information   tourism   exists   for a long time , but  still   not  admited  as an important   source of government   revenue.   Thus, according to   statistics, only   in 2012,   non-residents   of Ukraine   brought to   the state's economy   more than   100 million of dollars .
According to the Ministry   of Education and   Science of Ukraine,   in 2012,   the payment   of international students   brought   to the state budget   of about 800   million   UAH.   According to   government   estimates   of statistics of Ukraine , the figure  in   4.5-5   times   higher due to   the cost of food , entertainment,  household   needs , accommodation, etc., which  equates to   3.2   billion UAH . [5]
As of   January 1, 2013  in Ukraine  60.3   thousand foreign   students are getting education,   which is a record   (in the Soviet   time, the maximum   number of foreigners   who   have been educated   in educational institutions   of Ukraine   reached 30   thousand people in   1990) .
Every year   the number of   international students   increases every year ,  but the geographically,   major consumers of   Ukrainian   educational resources   are   countries of Asia   and   the third world   (Fig.   1) . [6]

Summary

With the development of the European integration dialogue between the Ukraine and the European informational integration processes are being prior not only for the European community, but also for our country. The formation of the information society requires the formation of new economic models of socio-economic development of the state. Economic models of European countries, based on the development of the information industry as a strategic, enabled these countries to take a leading position in the list of states with high level of socio-economic development. Information industries, for example of Germany, UK, Spain, Israel annually bring them up to 10% of GDP, while in Ukraine the figure is not more than 0,5%.
The analysis of statistic data shows that informational European integration is being the appropriate from the economic point of view. It allows to attract significant financial resources in the framework of implementation of the medium-and long-term programs for the development of informational European integration (Frame Program 7, Horizon 2020, Tempus, Erasmus, Jean Monnet Program, etc.). Only in the period of 2008-2012 Ukraine totally attracted at least 100 million Euro in the time of implementing of several European projects.
Informational European integration directly affects the development of "information tourism" (scientific, academic, business), which allows the state treasury to obtain significant dividends. The development of the course of informational European integration will allow fully rebuild the economic model of socio-economic development. Modernization of the information-intensive industries in accordance with European standards (the sphere of science and education, the sector of information and telecommunication services, sector of marketing and consulting services, etc.) and their integration into the European information space will enable Ukraine to promote economic growth and take its rightful place in the European community.
The results of the analysis presented in the article can be used while elaborating the recommendations for the creation of information policy, informational integration strategy, as well as further research of the problems of informational European integration.
